Congratulations Outlanders! Our long international nightmare, otherwise known as #Droughtlander, is over (for most of us) and we have survived! The Gàidhlig in this episode, while not plentiful, should prove as a nice refresher for a couple of words and phrases we learned from the first half of the Outlander season.
Return from rescuing Claire
19:39 Rupert to Dougal and the others at the inn
Ciamar a tha sibh! – Greeting: How are you (plural)!
Angus to the crowd
Tulach Ard! – MacKenzie war cry
36:14 Jamie’s response to Claire refusing the bed
OK. I’ve been corrected here. I thought he was saying ‘Glè mhath. – Very well’ but I’ve gone back and listened again and think Mhairi and Michelle are right. Jamie is actually saying oidhche mhath – Good night.
Oidhche mhath – Good night.
Also, LearnGaelic retweeted their 20 words post centered around Outlander. It’s a nice refresher with some sound files for names, etc.
Like I said at the start, the Gàidhlig this week wasn’t bountiful, but here’s to looking for more in the weeks to come!
